Persian Peoples of the Western Diaspora

In Philippians 1:6 (ESV), it is written: “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” This month is full of opportunities to pray these words over the Persian peoples of the Western diaspora! Four Persians are planning to be baptized this month. Their stories are as varied as they are beautiful. One of them, Jason, has been a believer for only a year, but his life is full of testimonies of the Lord’s faithful work. Another one of them, Mary, grew up in a Christian family in her homeland, and she has numerous stories of the difficulties that came from her family being different and following Christ surrounded by Islam. Please pray for these four to follow Christ faithfully until the end. Also this month, there will be a discipleship training event for Persian believers in the Western diaspora. Please pray that the Lord will use it to build on the foundation of their faith and continue to complete the good work that He has started in them.
